Comes with Spare Flints + Spare O Rings
• Easy to use
• Powerful Projecting LED Beam
• 2 Selectable Modes:
High Power 100% 165 Lumens
Low Power (9%) 14 lumens
• Perfect Uniform LED beam
• Rugged, machined stainless steel case
• Compact design
• Powered by a single rechargeable Lithium Cell battery
1. The Maximum beam distance is based on the minimum “obstacle avoidance” and “safety” illuminance (0.2 Lux) that is achieved at the stated beam distance. A mean illuminance level of 0.2 lx on the ground is considered to be sufficient to avoid striking obstacles based on experiments performed by Simmons (1975), Nikitin (1973), Jaschinski (1982), M.J. Ouellette and M.S. Rea (1989) et al. 0.2 lux is the recommended minimum illuminance for emergency evacuation and safety lighting as per many emergency lighting, safety standards and building codes adopted the world over including Australian & New Zealand Standard-AS2293, British Standard- BS5266-1:2011,European Standard- IEC 60598-2-22, Russian Daylight and Artificial Lighting emergency-SNiP23-05-95, etc.
Fire Up No Matter the Occasion
Regular butane lighters are riddled with problems – they don’t work well in the wind or when they’re wet, and they can run out of fuel without any warning. Have no fear, Util-Lite is here. Its high-intensity fire lighter flame – works in the wind, rain, and snow. Gasket sealed to prevent water going in or liquid flowing out.
Also, this amazingly tiny configuration contains a 70 mAh rechargeable Lithium Cell (Li-Ion) with a proprietary circuit design that features reverse polarity diode protection, ensuring no accidental damage that also provides 2 levels of brightness (Low / High).
Twist on for Low that achieves 14 lumens output for up to 6 hours. Or then Twist 1/2 more of a turn for High mode which achieves an amazing specified 180 lumens, tested at 179 lumens maximum, (165 Lumens mean), output at 610 candelas- mean average for up to 25 minutes.
Three Ways to Light Up, 3 levels of Brightness
Chances are, if you’re in need of a light, that you may also have need for a flame. That’s why we decided to combine a high-efficiency next generation bright LED flashlight with a fire lighter.
FLASHLIGHT-2 brightness settings LOW & HIGH
WIDE ANGLE BEAM 120o max., 60 o mid-range and 18.2 o half beam, WITH UP TO a maximum specified-180 Lumens total Light output, the prototype, “the system”, tested at an average of 165 Lumens, based on photometric bench tests -174 lumens, goniometer tests-169 lumens, and Integrating photometer-154 lumens, multiple averaged tests, with an accuracy of ± 3%. Therefore 149.4 % being the lowest possible lumens and 179.2 lumens, the highest based on many, averaged rigorous tests of the prototype.
Small & light enough to wear as a pendant.
The tiny Util-Lite will emit up to 180 lumens of light in your hand, with its tiny size of only 6cm (2.4 inch) x 1.4cm (0.5 inch) nominal, making the most of the latest LED technology, comparable to many far larger flashlights, allowing you to confidently make your way through the dark. Choose from two brightness settings for a light that perfectly suits your needs. The Ultil-Lite ultilises groundbreaking AurumSolis Patented technology that achieve an incredible tested average efficacy of 154 lumens per watt at maximum brightness, with a colour rendering index, specified at 70, tested at 73.7 max, the Color Rendering Index (CRI) is a scale from 0 to 100 percent indicating how accurate a “given” light source is at rendering colour when compared to a “reference” light source. The higher the CRI, the better the color rendering ability, which is more than the previous record achieved with a huge High pressure sodium (SON) lamps, the most energy efficient light source known with a reasonable colour rendering index of only CRI 25, and achieved 120 lumens per watt and is over half way to the theoretical limit for a white LED with phosphorescence, between 260 to 300 lumens per watt. 1 You will be amazed at what this tiny flash light will achieve and even more so that it provides a source of flame as well. The maximum Beam angle (beam spread) is 120 degrees, the Full Width Half Maximum (FWHM) is 18.2 degrees, so you get the best of both worlds, an intense spot and wide flood.
Charge It On-The-Go
Rather than using a traditional flimsy micro USB port cover, we created a simple mechanism to keep your port free of dirt and dust. Just twist off the flashlight head and twist on the Micro USB charging port made of stainless steel. The additional charging head reveals the micro USB charging port to easily charge up your Util-Lite anywhere. It also indicates when charge is complete, red light indicates charging, green indicates charge complete.
RECHARGEABLE VIA USB
Charge Complete – Green Indicator
Charging – Red Indicator
Long Battery Life
The small 70 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery can power the Util-Lite flashlight for up to 25 minutes on high and 6 hours on low. When not in use, the battery can hold its charge for up to a year.
Durable stainless steel body, Tiny and Ergonomic
The Util-Lite was designed to be both a functional flashlight and a fire lighter (for a full list of features, please scroll down to the Specification section below).
The Body is made of highly durable, 300 series stainless steel. The lens cover has an ergonomically molded thumb grip to ensure comfort and easy turning when handling. The firelighter cover is a quick twist off and lock for covering the firelighter, when not in use, it is so seamless that most people would not believe that there is an additional compartment there that can also be used for storing pills or whatever you can fit within.
Does your precious pocket space belong to only the most useful and compact of tools? Well its exactly what I wanted and designed 27 years ago, if you want a lot of utility in the smallest package possible, the Util-Lite has been specifically designed for you.
With an ergonomic shape, it functions, much like a traditional flashlight, but it also has a built-in firelighter on the opposing end so that it can be used as a source of flame.
Fire up in Style
The Util-Light offers a classic look with improved function. It’s smooth and robust stainless steel finish provides a premium and durable feel. The Stainless-steel casing is ideal for a robust highly durable tool. It also allows the lighter to take a form that will feel good in your hand and your pocket. Safe, simple and sleek – this flashlight and lighter will be sure to turn a few heads.
A light when you need it most
Never be caught in the dark again. The Util-Lite is small enough to carry with you wherever you go. Anyone got a light? You will have both.
An Everyday Carry
The Util-Lite is compact enough for a pocket but also powerful enough to withstand the wind, rain, snow and light up your surroundings. Taking up minimal space in your pocket, purse or pack, this high-power firelighter and flashlight combo is ready whenever you need it. No more worrying about running out of fuel – just charge it up while you sleep, fill up with lighter fuel and you’re set for many days.

Key to the amazing efficacy of 154 Lumens per watt are two major peaks of the LED spectrum, one at 555 nm, which corresponds to the peak average spectral sensitivity of human visual perception of brightness in the yellow green region of the spectrum that extends to the red but not too far towards the IR which is invisible to the human eye and is experienced by humans as heat, as well as a higher peak in the blue region that makes the combined light appear white to human eyes as per the CIE 1931 or CIE 1976 color space coordinate system-refer below, a quantitative link between physical pure colours (i.e. wavelengths) in the electromagnetic visible spectrum, and physiological perceived colors in human colour vision. The combined spectrum maximizes efficacy without compromising the colour the human eye perceives, to achieve a good daylight colour with good colourr endering CRI of 70+.

The “Util-Lite” as presented to you, began evolution from around 1991, 27 years ago, when I desired to own a useful, bright flashlight small enough to fit on a keychain and/or be comfortable enough within a tight pocket. I believed that such an instrument would already be on the market and that I should be able to purchase it and was just a matter of finding it. I then examined and purchased every small torch I could find and was somewhat disappointed with them all, either they were not robust enough, some made from plastic or the shape not ergonomic or aesthetically pleasing to me, worst of all, most didn’t provide a useful illumination.
It was during this time, that I began to make by modifying commercially available flashlights combining the best of certain feature that I tested in field and found desirable. There was no internet as we know it today, at the time, the internet, only communicated 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunications networks but as I was in the lighting industry I was lucky enough to have access to many light source catalogues from all over the world, therefore access to specialist medical, indicator, optical and scientific light sources that could make a tiny flashlight more useful. I began to evaluate, calculate lifetime and hours of use over brightness and catalogued all useful light sources I came across.
I also experimented with a variety of multi flashlight/spark/laser/firelighter/ultrasonic configurations including a laser/flashlight/firelighter as well as a laser/flashlight/electric plasma and many other combinations that used different light sources from incandescent, using halogen, krypton and xenon lamps, multi LEDs or single high brightness LEDs. From around 1994, I mainly used LED/s as lowlights, I also developed multiturn laser filter pattern generators. I then began to use high brightness LED’s in my own flashlight, years before they became commercially available. I settled on a compact tubular bullet shaped design, that would accept either AAA battery, LR44 cells or the most powerful lithium batteries as they became more commonly available.
I then began to combine and later modified several features based on tried and tested usefulness, such as a variety of multisource laser/flashlight spark/arc or firelighter sources that I carried around with me to determine an unbiased usefulness and show people, to see their interest and if they would ask me to make one for them, which many did.
One early prototype version that I unintentionally filmed, can be seen, used as a light pointer in my “antigravity” videos, – “ANTIGRAVITY”- The Reality, originally filmed between 1991 to 1996, with 15 methods of levitating an object known to myself with heavier than air devices usually referred to as “anti-gravity” as they achieve flight without propellers, jets or rocket propulsion, click on this link. https://www.youtube.com/user/JOHNROMANIWASZKO
Video’s shown on YouTube were filmed from 1991 to 1996, where I use a prototype of the “Util-Lite” multi-light source as a pointer.
Prototype “Util-Lite” left, from a video in the 90’s, with Laser diode, middle, focusable flash light head where I can be seen focusing the output incandescent light source head at 0.10 to 0.13 refer “Antigravity” Method video 1b of 15 and right, high brightness blue/white LED
Prototype “Util-Lite” left, from video in the 90’s, with High Brightness Red LED, middle and right, pin point output RED laser diode.
The original inspiration of this series was to show interested people “REAL” experiments that can levitate objects, real is defined as “SCIENTIFIC” experiments that are repeatable by others.
Over the years, I also experimented with many other interesting projects. From antigravity, Tesla Coils, wireless electricity, extremely efficient light sources, robots, nuclear fusion etc. Refer our web site “about” page to site a glimpse. http://antigravity.net.au/about-us/
The “Util-Lite” we offer you is based on an extremely portable, ergonomic light source made of robust stainless steel, as I found that many coatings on other metals wear, rust and chip, aluminium the most often used metal, for so called “robust” flashlights, even anodized, easily dents and scratches. I have also utilised the latest LED technology with two useful brightness’s as well as a useful firelighter, the very basic requirement based on my own experiments and market research.
After many years of road testing, and mainly popular demand, I decided to turn my own unique project to work and put the Util-Lite in everybody’s pocket or keyring. I wanted others to take advantage of something that I found ideal in my adventures, for everyday use at home or work. After testing, many of the current solutions on the market, I started to narrow in down to what I found that I liked and didn’t like with all the other products, I road tested.
I also took many flashlights and lighters apart to see how I could make them more versatile and compact. After many years of rigorous testing and prototyping, I decided on a single unit, with more features on future products that will of course be larger in size.
After deciding on a specific look, I built a prototype based on what I found to be the most pleasing and aesthetically desirable shape. This took years of hard work.
Putting the Prototype to the Test
I spent many years road-testing various designs, I do a lot of fossicking for meteorites and tektites in extremely harsh Australian conditions on a regular basis and have found the prototype an extremely great asset in times of need particularly when walking the dog at night, on camping trips, TV cable device fault finding and looking for tektites and meteorites.
I have personally used the prototype over many years in real world scenarios from campfires to candles and had a great time with it! Thanks for taking the time to learn more about our amazing product and the story behind it. I wouldn’t be here without your support.
